Giants 31, Redskins 7

Giants stick to grounded method

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The cold, the wind, a division opponent in December. It all added up to one thing for the Giants: run, run and run some more.

With the wind whipping around the New Meadowlands Stadium, the Giants turned to Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw, who turned the meeting with the Redskins into a rout by combining for four touchdowns and 200 yards rushing.

"We talked all week, we knew it would be cold," Jacobs said after rushing for 103 yards and two touchdowns. "We did say no dodging, run downhill. … If you don't have that, unless you're an indoor team, you're in trouble."

Jacobs set the tone with a 39-yard burst on New York's second play from scrimmage.

"You can't tackle the way we did in the first half and expect to win," coach Mike Shanahan said. "…There were a lot of mistakes in the first half that kept drives from happening. You do that, you get embarrassed like we did."

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
